Animals and Law—An Overview
Mike will provide an overview of animal law in Australia. He will analyse various laws
designed to protect animals and show how they often facilitate significant animal cruelty. Mike will also offer practical and realistic animal law reform ideas.
Mike volunteers as a lawyer and director for the Animal Defenders Office, a
not-for-profit animal law centre incorporated in the ACT. Mike provides legal
advice and assistance to people and organisations that want to protect animals. Mike also advocates for animal law reform and better treatment of animals through public forums and meetings with Ministers.
